Nestor's story

Nestor is 45 years old. He is a very hard working and supportive. He lives in a relative's house and is willing to work very hard to improve his quality of life. His business is selling clothes as a street vendor. Every day he walks the streets of the city of Juliaca seeking clients who wish to buy the clothes he sells. He brings the clothes from the city of Tacna (on the Chilean border). This is why the styles he sells are new and eye-catching. What he likes the most about his job is giving advice to his clients about the clothing that's in style. He has been engaged in this activity for 4 years and thinks that the hardest thing is having to walk all day long. In the future, he hopes to have anough money to have a store where he can sell more easily. This is the first loan that Nestor has had with MFP and he is willing to work very hard to make his payments on time. He is much loved in his communal bank because he always brings a lot of joy to the meetings. With the thousand nuevos soles he is asking for he will buy more clothes to be able to offer his clients a wider variety to choose from.
